Have you ever been here? Most of the minorities are indistinguishable from Han and actually have better protections under the law, take the former 1 child policy, it only applied to Han. I understand you have no reason to take my word for it, I just live here and have travelled about a 1/3 of the country.

There is a flaw in this statement.

There was a very obscure Confucian study group or sect that briefly proclaimed Confucius a deity and tried to worship him. The Ming and Qing government quickly put an end to the study group.

Taoism is a religion - they have texts, priests, temples, and ceremonies.

There are the Huanglao, which may or may not be a religion, and then there are the Tian-shi, which should be considered a religion.

I think Taoism is just such a word that compromise so many thoughts it's hard to really pin them down.

the thread is so ancient, so i just briefly reply:
the story of deity is not heard of by me, to the best of my knowledge.
confucious is strictly viewed as a person, perhaps at best a saint. the division is very clear, when you compare with him, for example, guan yu, the brother of liu bei. that is an ethics of confucianism.

I don't think southern China should be independent, because a unified China would be much better off than a divided China. However, I do feel that people need to acknowledge the fact that southern and northern China have somewhat different cultures and languages.

purakjelia is a cantonese (southern chinese) troll.

but i partially agree with him, i understand beijing intention to unified all chinese (han and non-han) by enforcing single culture and single language, so china become more unified. but in that process, it will destroy all other culture and sub-culture also dialect and language of other han and non-han chinese.

anyway, cantonese in hongkong attempt to become independence are seem futile since beijing has flooded hong kong with mainland chinese, so the CCP will win the 2047 referendum.

Most people in HK do not want to be independent from China I can assure that to anybody.
There is no 2047 referendum, who gives out that fancy idea?
Mainland Chinese flooded HK long time ago, in 1900 residents in Hong Kong were less than 200,000, now we have over 7 millions. Majority of HK people are still immigrants or their 2nd,3rd generations.

I think the poor and brainwashed slaves of China really need your pity. Please go and rescue the Chinese. My family members there are regularly tortured for believing in fair wages and Jesus. My cousin was found out to be a half Miao, so she got fired from her job. I think my friend got his organ removed the other night. Damn, he shouldn't have said Xi sucks.

India represents liberty and China is slavery. All Chinese support India and hate their own evil nation, and cannot wait until it is replaced by a humane, caring and compassionate system.

Very soon CCP agents will kidnap me and place me in Laogai for brainwashing. You Indians don't know how much freedom, love, and compassion you have. Everything in China is because king took out a whip and whipped us into work, and brainwashed us. If there is no CCP propaganda, we would not even want China to exist. We feel no liking for this evil nation. Please invade and divide China into hundreds of free nations before the Han dictators with all their big guns finish off genociding the remaining 50 some odd freedom loving religious innocents like the Tibetans and Uyghurs.

Did you know China stole Shanghai from Japan too? Guangdong is actually a free nation called Cantonia, but the barbaric Han invaders took over.

I need you to feel sorry for me and pity me. My life and the life of my brainwashed compatriots are pathetic and pitiful, as we have no free thought and anything we create are forced at gun point.

May I suggest reading Tom Clancy's Bear and the Dragon? It is a very good read and insight into the evil and ugly Maosuit-wearing Klingon known as the Chinese.
